UKIPT London Main Event starts today

Tuesday, 5 March 2013

March is shaping up to be a massive month for UK poker. No sooner has the London leg of the GUKPT drawn to a close than the PokerStars UKIPT rolls into town.

The Vic is the venue for the UKIPT's season three finale with the first of three opening flights for the £700+£70 Main Event starting at noon today. Further Day 1s will take place at the same time and at the same place on Wednesday and Thursday.

The UKIPT London Main Event is part of the huge EPT London festivities which will feature a host of tournaments at the Vic and at PokerStars' newest venue, the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square.

Festival highlights are set to include the £330 Spring Fling Turbo which a guaranteed prize pool of £25,000, the £10,300 EPT High Roller, a £550 No Limit Deepstack event, the £550 PokerStars Women event and the ever-popular £2,100 No Limit Turbo.

The EPT London Main Event gets under way on Sunday 10 March, the same day as the UKIPT crowns its winner. The complete schedule for the 12-day festival is available at the PokerStars UKIPT site.

Germany's Benny Spindler was the big winner on the EPT's last visit to the capital, pocketing £750,000 for the win.

New players can try and qualify online at PokerStars with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to $500.
